What did the Victorians read? In the first part of this course, we discuss some examples of English Victorian poems written by some famous men and women to gain an appreciation of what these writers had to offer. We shall then analyse some well-known novellas of this period: A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens, Under the Greenwood Tree Thomas Hardy, Black Beauty Anna Sewell and The Strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Robert Louis Stevenson. These classic works of short fiction will also give us a taste of what Victorians read and enjoyed. It is hoped that today’s readers will also find them of great interest.
